Get on those 5hr energy shots hahaha

A lot of my morning rides I barely eat :S

I find I get stomachaches. I just have gels, bars, gaterade for the ride. Sometimes I take a 5hr before hand

I probably wouldn't recommend not eating tho lol but I do it

[edit] i do however eat a lot the night before, then sleep full lol. i have a fruit, veggie hemp seed shake in the morning and thats it.

Pretty nice out today, went for a ride with a good buddy of mine.
Went up to SFU, did a loop around Stanley park on the road, stopped at Musette Cafe, then to UBC and ride back home.
It was a great ride

3 times around UBC today. Wanted to do 4, but I ran out of water Avg 23.9km/h. 30 seems like a long ways away.

So far, I've found it to be Costco, or if you really want to nickel and dime, Bellingham.

Wow, seems like lots of riders on here. Went out for a horseshoe bay trip today. day was too beautiful to not get out.

If anyone else has mondays free, msg me too.

group rides are fun. but it's important to do it with everyone knowing what to expect.

Cheapest would be REI in the States. I don't know about Costco, I'm the only person without a membership! Any running store carries all that too, Running Room for sure...and they just had a 20% coupon for the month of Feb! I still have a valid coupon there (perks of being a run leader there) so if you want anything from there, let me know.

I'm down for a ride after next week!

FINALLY finished bulding my 2010 Kona Jake the Snake! Bought this frame like back in the summer of 2012 off eBay and have been slowly amassing the parts I wanted. Ok, the pics...





The parts list:
Frame: 2010 Kona Jake the Snake 52cm
Handlebars/Stem: Ritchey WCS Logic Curve / Thomson Elite X2 100mm
Fork/Headset: Kona Carbon Cross / Cane Creek
Front Wheel: Mavic Ksyrium Elite with Ritchey Excavader Cross tire 700 x 32c
Rear Wheel: Mavic Ksyrium Elite with Ritchey Speed Max Cross 700 x 32c
Crankset/Bottom Bracket: SRAM Force / SRAM GXP
Saddle/Seat Post: Selle San Marco Era Luxe / Thomson Elite
Pedals/Chain: Shimano PD-M530 / SRAM PC510
Shifters/Derailleurs: SRAM Force/SRAM Force
Brakes: Avid Shorty 4 with Halt Gooey pads in blue
Misc: Lizard Skins DSP bar tape, TACX bottle cage, Axiom carbon fiber saddlebag, Jagwire cables, Problem Solvers Cross cable hanger, Thomson Elite seat post clamp, BLT Dropflash (bar end lights)

Don't ask me how much it costed, because I'm too scared to tally the total. Yeah, I probably could have bought a brand new JTS, but of course, I wanted to hand pick my parts & build it to my liking. I was swapping out parts before it was even near completion, things like silver headset spacers to match, cable housings, swapped out black Thomson Elite seat post for a silver one, etc. And yes, it was built up in my bedroom!
Looking forward to putting some mileage on it.

thats a pretty sick looking saddle bag, awesome build!

btw: for all you guys that do your monster rides, what do you guys carry with you in terms of hydration, energy bars etc.

i just have a bottle of water and maybe a clif bar, i've see on crc all sorts of gels etc for hydration/endurance. are they any useful? or should i just stick with water.

I'm just getting into the longer rides myself, but I was amazed at the immediate difference a power bar or two did throughout the ride. I'll try gel's next time because the bars were a real pain to eat while moving. Not to mention take a ton of water to get them down. I have two bottle holders. Seems to be decent for this weather, but once it get's hot i'll have to plan my rides around refill stations. lol

Most times I end up stopping by a coffee shop for a few to hang out so I'm drinking coffee + a snack (banana bread etc lol) mid ride.

But I have 2 bottles, one water one gaterade. 2 gel packs and a bar of some sort.

Thats for a ride between 60-100km.

Chillin at musette is key

I find that with bars, they take longer to digest so you don't get an immediate relief of energy. They're good for longer endurance rides and timing when you eat the bars is key. Like yourself, I find that it takes A LOT of water to wash it down.

I'm going to try something like a gel next time instead.

Cold 41km this morning because I was still feeling a little sore. But I felt like a monster tearing apart a banana with my teeth over the Burrard St. Bridge haha.
